Mediterranean umami guacamole

  • Mediterranean umami guacamole
4-6servings
4-6servings

This version of guacamole takes a detour from its Mexican roots and instead relies on a Mediterranean flavor profile. The avocado provides the creamy base which is then spiked with a series of flavorful and slightly assertive ingredients. This guacamole is also packed with umami (pepperoni, dried tomatoes, Parmesan, and MSG) which provides a savory flavor that lasts long on the palate.

Ingredients (4-6servings)

  • 2 oz. thinly sliced pepperoni
  • 2 ripened Haas avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ½ Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup dried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons Italian parsley leaves, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons high quality green olives, finely chopped
  • 1 oz. finely grated Parmesan
  • ¼ teaspoon MSG
  • 1 small Serrano chile, minced
  • Several pinches salt (to taste)
